I went through and cleaned out my Gmail account. It’s so nice to not have hundreds of messages waiting for me.

I culled that down to about 50 messages that are of value. The rest are trash.

It’s amazing how much the digital clutter also bugs me.

I’ve hit that point in the process where I’m starting to look around and try to figure out what to get rid of in the house. I’ve culled so many items that it’s starting to be tough to figure out what to toss.

While I’m proud of the progress, I’m nervous that I won’t make tit all year.

This is another Free Download Friday that I missed in a previous picture. I decided to count it since we’re close!

The Kroger Free download Friday is my favorite!

Every Friday they offer a free giveaway item. All you have to do is download the coupon.

I’ve started using it as a way to collect items for the Green and Gold cupboard.

These are two of the items that will be going to the cupboard shortly!

This one involved some purchases, but I am counting it.

I purchase bottled water at Sam’s. I’m trying to be healthy, so water is a huge part of that.

I was spending about $20 dollars each month purchasing water. I realized that I could buy two water bottles and within two months be saving fund. I did just that. I also got the bottles on sale, so it’s a win-win. I’m finishing the last of the Sam’s water and will then be done!

Speaking of cleaning out, here are those two bulletin boards. I am planning to offer these to the crew in the office.

Assuming there are no takers, I’m taking these to MARVA next week. My office is finally put together after the move!

I finally cleaned out my bulletin board at the office. I changed offices and had to get a smaller board. By default, this forced me to do some spring cleaning. This is the pile that I no longer feel attached to.

It was definitely fun going through an recalling these moments and experiences. However, it also reminded me that sometimes you have to let go of good to get great <— I think this is my mantra of the year.

I got this bracelet forever ago. It was my favorite, and I wore it quite a bit. It was one of my long-term find from The Limited.

It was starting to show quite a bit of rubbing wear, so I finally got rid of it. I replaced it with a plan bracelet from White House Black Market.

The next batch in the repetitive cycle is a pile of coupons. These coupons expired at the end of August, and I won’t be using them before that. I have decided to go ahead and toss them.

Up next is a pile of checks that are various types of reimbursements. It seems like I recently blogged about this but am not thinking that’s not the case.

I found checks from April that have been deposited and can now be thrown away.
